Body Mass Index
Body mass index, BMI, is a number generated by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height in metres squared.
Body mass index (BMI) = weight(kg) ÷ height(m)2

Our ideal weight range charts are based on body mass index, modified to take into account whether you are male or female.
Body mass index is used to determine whether an individual, male or female, falls into a broad band considered to be healthy weight, or is outside the parameters and, if so, to what extent.
BMI is used by scientists and researchers to determine the health implications of being a certain weight for your height.
